U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued an order yesterday that approved a $10 million agreement between Paul Manafort's lawyers and special counsel Robert Mueller, which would end his current house arrest, Politico reports.

Manafort has been hoping to relocate to his property in South Florida. He is currently facing several charges, including money laundering and failing to register as a foreign lobbyist; he has no set court date, but Jackson suggested it could be announced at the next hearing in mid January.
